Liebster Award

My blog has been nominated for another award! These types of awards have some critics. There are people who compare them to chain letters, but I think they’re a fun way to find new blogs while promoting your own. Others think it’s silly for bloggers to give awards to other bloggers, but I think our peers are in the best position to know what blogging is all about. I love it when my blog gets nominated for an award. It’s so exciting and it feels good to be noticed.

Peachy accepting her Liebster Award Nomination

Yup. I’m pretty amazing.

This time the award Diary of a Little Peach has been nominated for is the Liebster Award. We were nominated by the amazing Becky from Bexer’s Blog. Becky is a speech language pathologist recently turned stay at home mom. She has two girls and blogs about motherhood, her kiddos, and life. Check out her post for the Liebster Award here.


Becky has asked me 11 questions as part of the Liebster Award nomination.

1. What is the one most important thing that readers should know about you and/or your blog?

The most important thing people need to know about my blog is that it is written by me, Peachy. The most important thing about me is that I am the blogging baby/toddler. It’s my blog and everything here is written from my perspective.

2. What is your favorite season?

Definitely summer. I love to go outside and play. When it’s really warm mommy takes me to the water park and that’s my favourite place to go.

3. Which superpower would you choose to have?

I would like to have super strength so that I can overpower mommy and daddy when they try to stop me from doing what I want to do and going where I want to go. I try that now but they’re still stronger than I am.

4. What is your favorite dessert?

Fresh baked cookies. I love it when they’re soft and full of chocolate chips. Mmm. So yummy.

5. Have you ever been read by a medium?

No. Never.

6. What is your favorite thing to blog about?

I like to blog about myself. My favourite posts are the ones about fun activities I did or interesting places I went. I’m a fun loving girl.

7. If you could have a re-do of your childhood would you?

I’m still a toddler. I think I need to get through my first try at childhood before I can have a re-do.

8. If you could live anywhere in the world where would you choose?

My primary residence would be at the water park but I would spend my winters living at the toy store.

9. Does your family have a “secret recipe”? For what?

We have many recipes but none of them are secret. The moment we perfect one I share it on my blog.

10. What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday?

Did I tell you about the water park already?

11. What is your favorite drink?

That’s an easy one. I love milk!


Now it’s time for me to share the love. One of the rules of the Liebster Award is that you should write a little about your favourite blog. There are so many incredible blogs out there that I really can’t choose just one. Instead I’m going to tell you about three out of the many that I read on a regular basis.

Lucy at Home is a fabulous blog written by the amazing Lucy. She is a stay at home mom and blogs about her life as mommy of 2 girls. My favourite thing about this blog is that Lucy is incredibly creative and inventive. Her ideas are truly her own.

Life At 139A is one of the first blogs I ever started following regularly. The woman behind the blog is Stephanie and she writes about her life, travels, and garden. I love how positive Stephanie is and the way she looks for beauty in everyday things.

A Moment with Franca is a lifestyle and parenting blog managed by the super organized Franca. She runs a tight ship. Her blog is always polished to perfection and her posts are timely. On top of it all she runs #KCACOLS which is my favourite linky.

Kitchen Helper

One of my favourite things to do is helping mommy in the kitchen. Mommy tells me that I’m a very good helper and that makes me feel very useful. It’s a great feeling and it motivates me to help out some more. I know mommy appreciates my help and company.

I like to help with the dishwasher. I’m good at taking dishes and cutlery out of the machine and stacking them on the floor. I’m great at splashing around in the residual water that ends up on the open door of the dishwasher. Sometimes I even help load the machine by tossing some of my toys in there.

Once we have the dishwasher loaded and the kitchen tidy, mommy and I get cooking. The first step is to rummage around in the refrigerator. That’s where the food comes from and we can’t cook without food. The moment mommy opens the refrigerator door I run over and get to work.

Mommy goes for the chicken and I grab a box of some sort. I shake the box for a moment but it’s not as satisfying as I hoped so I toss the box on the floor. Mommy searches in the pantry while I continue working in the refrigerator. We work side by side to get the job done.

I spot a cucumber. I love cucumbers! I grab it and take a bite. The cucumber is surprisingly tough and covered in some sort of plastic film. Not as tasty as I remember cucumbers to be. Very disappointing. I guess it’s just not cooked yet so I toss it aside and move on to something else.

I see cheese and I suddenly get a craving for the stuff. I try to grab it but it’s in some sort of plastic compartment that I can’t get open. I give up on the cheese and go for the egg carton instead. I pull with all my might and wrestle the egg carton from its place. That’s when mommy intervenes by grabbing the carton and she puts it back in place.

Peachy is the kitchen helper

How do you get the cheese out?

Mommy gives me a look and asks me to close the fridge. I hesitate and consider my options. If I close the fridge I won’t have access to all the goodies inside. If I don’t close the fridge mommy will do it and I still won’t be able to get at the stuff inside, on top of not having the satisfaction of closing the fridge. I back up, get a good hold of the door, and slam it shut. That felt good!

Next mommy searches around in the drawers and cupboards. She pulls out a cutting board, roasting pan, small pot, knife, brush, and wooden spoon. I get the small pot and wooden spoon while mommy occupies herself with the rest of the items.

While mommy washes and chops, I bang the pot with the wooden spoon. I get pretty good sound out of that thing. I begin to wonder what other sounds I can make. I use the spoon on the tile floor, then the oven door, followed by mommy’s leg. The oven door made the best sound so I go back to banging on that for a while.

I enjoy the sounds I’m making but it feels like something is missing, so I begin to sing. I don’t let my lack of words stop me from singing. I don’t see why I should. Singing is making music with your mouth and you don’t need words for that. After a moment mommy joins in with some mouth music of her own and we sing together while I keep the beat with the wooden spoon.

Once I get bored with singing, I toss the wooden spoon and come over to see what mommy is doing. There’s a lot of chopping going on and I demand a taste. Mommy tells me that she is chopping potatoes and that raw potatoes are not tasty. She reaches into the cupboard, pulls out a baby biscuit, and offers me that instead. I take the biscuit and sit on the floor to enjoy it while I watch mommy continue with her chopping.

By the time my biscuit is gone, mommy is done chopping. She arranges the potatoes around the chicken in the roasting pan while I watch. Then she asks me to stand clear while mommy opens the oven and puts the roasting pan in. As soon as the door is closed I rush over to peek through the window.

It’s dark in there and I can’t see a thing. I complain to mommy and she turns on the light. I look through the window again and sure enough, the roasting pan is indeed in there. I watch it while mommy washes her hands. It’s not doing anything and I quickly lose focus.

Mommy picks up the cucumber I had tasted and gives it a rinse. Mommy pulls out a clean cutting board and a peeler. I know the cucumber is about to be made tasty so I hurry over and demand a piece. Mommy makes me wait while she peels the cucumber and chops off a manageable piece which she cuts into quarters. She hands it to me and I give it a taste. That’s good cucumber!

I ask for another piece and munch away on that while mommy keeps slicing. Then I ask for several more pieces and I keep crunching while mommy chops up other vegetables. By the time mommy is done, I have eaten a quarter of the cucumber. It was a big cucumber.

Mommy puts the vegetables aside for later and she tells me that it’s time for a break. I’m pretty full and a bit tired so I follow mommy into the living room and climb onto the couch next to mommy. We watch TV for a bit until daddy comes home. Then it’s dinner time and we eat the meal that mommy and I prepared. It’s a satisfying feeling to watch people enjoy the meal you made.

The Perpetual Motion Machine

I am a bundle of energy with vigour to spare. Utilized correctly my energy could power a city block. Instead I use my energy to thoroughly exhaust mommy and leave chaos in my wake. I emit havoc and mayhem, leaving a residue of pandemonium wherever I go.

Right after breakfast I burn off a bit of energy by racing circles around mommy while she tries to tidy up a little. I try to be useful by helping mommy put my dishes in the dishwasher but mommy always insists that she do it herself. I can be insistent too and I prove it by attempting to climb into the dishwasher in pursuit of the whisk. Mommy pulls me out and closes the dishwasher.

While mommy wipes the table I crawl underneath in search of wayward Cheerios. I thought I was full but somehow there is always room for floor food. I manage to eat a few Cheerios before mommy becomes aware of the crunching sounds coming from underneath the table. A quick sweep with the broom puts an end to my fun.

I attempt to do a thorough investigation of the broom’s findings as mommy gives the kitchen floor a quick sweep. Every time I try to grab at the growing pile of treasure mommy moves it out of my reach with the broom. It’s a fun game! Mommy doesn’t agree. The game is over when mommy puts the broom away.

I spot something out of the corner of my eye. It’s one of our cats coming around the corner. I take off in pursuit screaming as I go and the cat makes a run for it. “Get back here and let me love you!” I yell in my own way. The cat doesn’t listen and I lose track of him behind the couch.

I hear commotion on the other side of the couch and I run over to investigate. It’s mommy setting up my foam floor! I rush over to lend a helping hand and together we get the job done in no time. Mommy stretches out on the floor and I watch with curiosity. This is no time for a nap. There are adventures to be had!

Peachy waiting for mommy to get up

If you don’t get up I’m coming down there.

I pounce on mommy and attempt to use her tummy as a trampoline. She makes a funny noise and wraps me into a bear hug. As I wiggle out of her arms she rolls over and I climb onto her back to ride the mommy horse. I love this game! Mommy doesn’t agree about this one either.

As I bounce around on mommy’s spine I take her yelps and grunts as a sign that she’s secretly having fun and I bounce higher. I throw myself head first off mommy’s back while she tries to catch me and ease me down gently. Mommy’s frantic attempts to save me are hilarious and I get a serious case of the giggles.

Mommy sits up and tickles my tummy, then she covers my face in kisses. I try to swat mommy away but the giggles make it hard to concentrate. I swat, shriek, kick, and giggle until mommy sits back up. I jump to my feet and grab mommy’s ponytail. I yank it this way and that way while watching mommy’s head move around in response. Another great game that mommy doesn’t seem to have any love for.

Mommy tries to distract me with a stuffed animal. I try to ignore it but mommy sings a silly song and makes the toy dance to the beat. I can’t help but join in with a little dance of my own. The song comes to an end and I stomp my feet as fast as I can. Then I race off towards the kitchen.

With no particular destination in mind, I run circles around the kitchen island. On my fourth lap I spot something under the refrigerator. I come to a stop and do a bit of a belly flop onto the floor. I impersonate a pancake and flatten myself as much as I can while I peer into the darkness under the fridge. There’s something under there!

Carefully I reach under the refrigerator and pull out something that resembles a wrinkly grape. I love grapes! Mommy arrives in the kitchen just as I’m about to plop the grape into my mouth. With a shriek mommy lunges for my hand sending the grape flying across the room. We both take off in pursuit of the grape but mommy gets there before I do.

Mommy opens the fridge, pulls out my lunch, and packs it in my diaper bag. I know that means we’re going to the park. There’s lots of space to run around there and plenty of things for me to explore. I love it when mommy takes me to the park. I get to run and play until I’m tired and then I have my lunch while I watch the big kids play.

I jump up in excitement and race to the front door. I look back to make sure mommy is on her way and she is! I’m giddy with anticipation and very impatient but I suppress my need to squirm while mommy puts my shoes on. After what feels like at least an eternity, mommy has her shoes on and we’re on our way. I love the park and that’s something mommy and I can agree on.

Generation Alpha or Generation Glass?

As a daughter of parents belonging to Generation Y, I am a part of Generation Alpha. My generation consists of babies born between 2011 and 2025. Many of us haven’t been born yet but we are estimated to reach almost 2 billion by the time we’re all here. Make way for Generation Alpha!

The parents of my generation tend to be older by the time their first baby is born, and our families will generally be smaller than the majority of families from the past. Many of our parents will live longer lives than their parents, and will enjoy a slightly higher standard of living. Our parents are more open to switch careers and look for alternative work arrangements. The best feature of Generation Y is that they are much more likely to lavish upon their children both love and material possessions.

Generation Alpha will continue in the footsteps of our parents by becoming the most educated generation to date. In order to be successful, we will need to be adaptable and creative in response to a changing and highly competitive marketplace. With high levels of education and an ingenuity when it comes to career choices, my generation is likely to be wealthier than its predecessors. We will certainly have our share of challenges but plenty of opportunities too.

Unsurprisingly, my generation is, and will be much more technologically supplied. While our parents may remember a world where having an internet capable computer in their home was a luxury, or at least slow dial-up modems that made surfing the net a headache, the world of my generation has free WiFi at every corner. We are being raised in a world of cell phones, tablets, and internet access for all.

However controversial, Generation Alpha is getting a lot more screen time. There are shows and apps made for even the youngest members of Generation Alpha. Some offer exhilarating entertainment and others are brilliantly educational. Some of us are practically being raised by technology and even parents who limit screen time will still allow us more than they had when they were our age. Because of this some people are labelling us Generation Glass.

I have never hidden the fact that I love my screen time and that mommy allows me to play games and watch shows. Some may criticize our family but we have to find the right mix of activities that works for us. Each of our days consist of outdoor activities (weather permitting), indoor play, reading, social time, learning, and screen time. In our family we aim for a healthy mix of activities for well-rounded fun and education.

Practicing my screen time

During the week TV is reserved for evenings when we relax after supper. I usually play with my toys while the TV plays in the background but I might watch it if something good comes on. On weekends I love to watch TV first thing in the morning on those lazy days, but if we have a family activity planned we might not watch any TV at all. Weekends are spontaneous and less structured days. They’re full of surprises.

Most days I watch one of my shows on the tablet while I’m eating breakfast. Mommy likes to use that time to empty and reload the dishwasher, and get us ready for the outdoor activity we have planned for that day. The tablet does a good job of keeping me entertained while I eat my fruit. It also comes in very handy if I get impatient on long car rides.

The tablet is where I keep my apps. Mommy likes to get me apps that have some educational component, but a few are just for fun. Some apps I play by myself when I don’t feel like playing with my toys during indoor play time. Other apps mommy and I play together as part of my learning time. These usually consist of pictures which depict common objects and mommy and I talk about the things we see on the screen.

No post about screen time can be complete without a mention of mommy’s cell phone. I never watch shows on it and there are virtually no apps on there, but I love playing with it. Whenever I see it, which is often, I pick it up and play with it. There was a time when I would have to ask mommy to turn it on for me whenever the screen went dark, but after watching mommy do it so many times I can now turn it on by myself.

Mommy’s cell phone looks just like a mini tablet and it functions very much like one too. Sometimes it works more like the house phone. The cell phone rings and a voice comes out of it. A few times mommy put it up to my ear and I could hear daddy’s voice! I try doing that on my own from time to time but daddy’s voice is never there when I do it.

Overall I do spend a good deal of time in front of a screen of some sort. Maybe mine really is the Glass Generation. Some people might see this as a problem but in our family our screens are tools like any other. Sometimes we use them to sit back, relax, and waste time. Other times we use them as aids in our daily lives. Would I be better off with no screen time? It’s hard to say.

What we can be sure of is that screens are not going away and there will be a lot more screen time in my future. Technology has revolutionized the way we work, how we have fun, and the means by which we keep in touch with those we care about. As technology infiltrates our lives further it’s sure to become even more of a necessity. I have many things to learn and skills to acquire and I have to make time for those things, but screens are going to be just as much a part of my life and I need to know how to use them too.

Laying the Groundwork

Now that I’m a big girl I get a lot more freedom to explore the house on my own. I no longer spend all my time trapped within the confines of my baby zone. However that doesn’t mean I don’t use my baby zone anymore. In fact, I use it every day.

The baby zone is where most of my toys are stored. With it’s cushioned floors and central location in the living room, it’s the best place to play. I love playing in my baby zone and those cushioned floors are a major selling point. What makes them so cushy are my interlocking foam floor tiles. These would be a great feature in any baby zone.

The existence of the foam tiles has established a bit of a routine for mommy and I. Every night the foam tiles need to be pulled apart and stacked neatly in the corner, and every morning they need to be set up on the floor again. This has become as much a part of our day as breakfast and playtime.

I know what you’re thinking. You’re wondering why we don’t just leave the foam tiles in place all the time. The reason is that our cats have decided that foam makes an ideal scratching post. If we’re not there to keep an eye on things, the foam tiles get destroyed rather quickly. Foam doesn’t stand much of a chance against sharp claws.

I’m a very good girl and a super helpful peach. For as long as I have been able to walk on my own, I have been helping mommy set up the foam tiles every morning. I bring the tiles over to mommy, one at a time, and mommy sets them in place. Then I help lock the tiles together by pressing on the interlocking teeth with my trusty poking finger until they are joined snugly.

Peachy helping to set up the foam floor tiles

Poke!

Mommy and I have become very proficient at getting the foam floor tiles set up and it takes us no time at all to get the job done. We work very well together and the process is so finely tuned that there is never any confusion and we don’t get in each other’s way. Two heads are better than one, four hands are better than two, and work feels less tedious when you’re in good company.

Lately I have been trying my hand at helping mommy take the foam tiles apart at the end of the day. This is a bit more tricky as they lock together very well and it’s not that easy to pull them apart. It’s probably because I do such a good job of poking the interlocking teeth together.

In order to pull the tiles apart, you have to hold two of them in your hands. They are large and unruly and two are difficult for me to handle. Mommy has been showing me a technique where she uses her foot to hold down one tile and then pulls up the adjoining tile with her hands, separating them with one smooth pull. Mommy makes it look so easy.

I have been trying the one foot technique but it’s not as simple as it looks. You have to know where to put your foot and where to pull. It’s not as obvious as it sounds. Then you need to apply just enough pull to get the tiles apart, but not so much that you knock yourself off balance.

Keeping your balance during this procedure is deceptively difficult. Placing one foot on the foam tiles throws off your center of gravity. Pulling on the tile you’re stepping on can quickly cause a problem. It’s easy to go plunkers if you’re not being careful.

I’ve been getting better at pulling those foam tiles apart but they still give me trouble sometimes. I’m much better at helping mommy stack them in the corner. Things go more smoothly if mommy separates the tiles and hands them to me one at a time. I then carry them over to the corner and stand them on end next to each other in a somewhat neat fashion.

There’s a bit of room for improvement but mommy and I are starting to find our groove for the end of day tear down routine. It’s not as smooth as the morning set up routine yet, but we’re getting there. I’m sure we’ll be just as efficient with it in no time. It is something we practice every day.

#DreamTeam Linky Roundup

Last week I was co-hosting the #DreamTeam linky along with Bridget from Bridie By The Sea, Nicola from All Things Spiced, and Helen from Talking Mums. My fabulous co-hosts and I were stepping in for Annette from 3 Little Buttons, and Dawn from Rhyming with Wine, who were enjoying a well deserved vacation. I hope they had a marvellous time!

This week Annette and Dawn are back with Bridget and the #DreamTeam linky has its hosts again. The world is back in order and things are as they should be. The #DreamTeam is back! Welcome home!

#DreamTeam badge

A big thank you to the #DreamTeam for giving me the chance to help out and be a part of this fabulous community. Co-hosting the linky was an amazing experience and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to be involved. It was an honour to be a guest co-host and I am thrilled to have had this chance to see the #DreamTeam linky from the other side of the fence.

Last week we had a total of 55 posts linked up and, as always, they were of the highest quality. There were many familiar faces, and a few blogs that I had never visited before. It’s always nice to visit old friends and make new ones at the same time. Thank you to all who joined in last week. You make this linky the awesome thing that it is and without you there would be no #DreamTeam.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my fellow co-hosts for being so friendly and kind. Everyone was always willing to jump in with answers to any questions and the desire to make the linky run smoothly was clearly apparent at every turn. You made this experience that much more enjoyable for me.

As co-host, I have one more job to do and it’s probably the best part of all. I get to choose two of my favourite posts and name my featured bloggers! Blogging is hard work and I just love to give encouragement and recognition for a job well done, so this task is close to my heart.

There were so many great posts last week and it was not easy to pick just two favourites. Blogging is an art and judging art is subjective. There is no right or wrong way to write a blog post. All I can do is pick two posts that caught my eye and resonated with me. So without further ado, here are my two featured bloggers.

My Featured Bloggers

My first post is 5 Reasons Why The End Of Nap Time Isn’t The End Of The World by Alana from Burnished Chaos. With a “before” and “now” comparison, Alana has done a great job of putting a positive spin on something most parents dread. I’m not quite ready to give up my naps just yet, but this is a topic that mommy and I talk about every once in a while.

My second post is A Canvas for Daddy by Katie from Mummy Snowy Owl. Katie wrote about a DIY project that is just right for little hands. Mommy and I love this idea and it’s perfect for kids of all ages. Just because you’re small doesn’t mean you can’t create art.

Well done Alana and Katie! Thanks for sharing your fabulous posts with the #DreamTeam. Don’t forget to grab your featured blogger badge and display it with pride!

A brand new instalment of the #DreamTeam linky went live this morning. Make sure you visit Bridget, Annette, and Dawn to join the party and link up. You wouldn’t want to miss out on being a part of this amazing community. Besides, you can’t be a #DreamTeam featured blogger if you don’t link up!

Father’s Day 2.0

Today is Father’s Day, or as I like to call it, Daddy’s Day. My daddy is the best! We have so much fun together and daddy is the best at making me laugh. He is full of surprises and always thinks up some way to put a smile on my face. I love my daddy.

This year is my daddy’s second Father’s Day. Last year I got daddy a card and mommy ordered a custom printed photo collage. We framed it and hung it up in the hallway to commemorate daddy’s first ever Father’s Day. It’s still there now and when I see it I’m amazed by how much I have grown.

When I think about what daddy was like a year ago, he’s not all that different. Daddy was always the silly one that brought out the giggles in me. That’s what daddy and I have always been about. The things that bring out my biggest giggles might have changed, but daddy’s ability to get those giggles out is the same.

I on the other hand have changed so much over the past year. I am much bigger and my sense of humour is very different. I still like being tossed in the air, and daddy’s tickles get me every time, but my other comedy preferences have matured. It’s a good thing that daddy is willing to put in the effort to figure out how to tickle my funny bone.

I have changed in other ways too. Not only do I no longer struggle with sitting upright by myself, I can actually walk and even run all over the house. I am much more aware of how my family works and I understand our routines. I get excited when daddy comes home and I run to him when he comes through the door. I can even say a few words and of course, dada is among them.

Father’s Day 2016

This year I got daddy a card for Father’s Day. Mommy made a few suggestions on which cards we should get but I knew which one was made for daddy the moment I saw it. We also picked up some chocolate because daddy loves chocolate, along with some new shirts, and a pretty gift bag to put it all in. Daddy was so surprised when he opened his presents!

Mommy and I also ordered a few photos of my favourite moments with daddy from the last year. There was also a custom card from me with my picture on the front and another picture of daddy and I taken last year on Father’s Day. Unfortunately, these items have not arrived in time for Father’s Day. Daddy will have to be patient.

Most weekends mommy and I convince daddy to join us on some sort of adventure, or we give him a project to work on. This weekend we’re letting daddy take it easy. We’ve been having a relaxing day at home as a family just the way daddy likes it. Daddy works hard all week and there is nothing he likes more than having a weekend to relax. It’s part of his Father’s Day present.

I know that daddy sometimes feels like he takes a second place to mommy since mommy and I spend so much time together, but that’s not true. Daddy has his own special place in my heart and it is no smaller than the place I have for mommy. We may have less time together but the time we do have is very precious to me. I hope daddy knows how much he means to me and what a huge part he plays in my life. I love you daddy!

Happy Father’s Day
